He wants to know why I am so shy and guarded.
Number one thing you should know is that yes I have had a shy personality since I was a child. basically for years in my early 20's I had severe acne. It was all over my back, chest, neck, and face. I tried over 10 different prescription oral and topical treatment that all failed. During this time, I went into complete isolation. I stayed at home all day. If I needed to eat, I ordered in or went grocery shopping at night. If someone asked to hang out, it turn them down. I would wash my face in the dark because I didn't want to see myself. I have no pictures of myself from those years. Until I went on Accutane, which is the last resort for acne as it's very harsh. It cleared me up.
If I say this will he laugh or think I'm being too serious about it? I feel like since I'm so guarded he's thinking wow something terrible must have happened to her and this might seem like nothing like oh some skin problem. but really it was a psychological problem.
